How did Tinker Bell get her name? In J. M. Barrie's original version of the play Peter Pan
, the little sprite's name was Tippytoe, and she had speaking lines. But over time, Barrie decided that the fairy's expressions would be best voiced by musical chimes. Now, more than a hundred years later, it is difficult to believe that this popular pixie began as a circle of lamplight, reflected in a mirror controlled by a stage hand behind the curtains. Tinker Bell: An Evolution
is a full biography of the fiery little fairy. The book is heavily illustrated, highly detailed, and will make the perfect gift for every grown-up who believes in fairies.
